If you are studying Edexcel IGCSE Maths. I suggest you use Mymaths and purchase the CGP revision guide. Practice all the past papers and you should be fine. Also going on examsolutions helps if you are stuck on a topic.

Hope that helps

In that case MyMaths and CGP are still good resources but you should also use your own textbook to go over topics that are included in CIE but not Edexcel, e.g. set theory, differentiation, etc.

For maths I find going over the textbook a bit useless if you already know the fundamentals and the formulas, swear I haven't opened it for over 2 dozen times. Read the textbook if you are still unfamiliar with the theories, but the best way to study maths for me is by doing heaps of past papers.

That's great, and from experience, i would say start on a variety of past paper questions and focus on revising topics which you struggle with the questions for.
